About Me And we can see no reasons 'cause therea are no reasons what reasons do you need to be told? Q: Tell me why? A: "I don't like rich kids"
(repeat refrain) Apparently, it's not Mondays anymore.
I'm a veteran activist. Environment, Homeless Rights, NYC politics. I've been gaining education and experience in Asia for the last 15 years, and the circles are growing tighter. Myanmar/Burma and Mongolia are particular areas of interest.

Political Leaning

Eating Habits strictly Buddhist  
Wild Fact About Me Regarding the Activist aspirations, I've found that sober and steadfast is most radical. I've spent the last 15 years living in India, China, Sri Lanka and Japan, and not for one minute did I miss the US. However (and perhaps this belongs under the 'what gives me hope' section) to the people in Asia trapped by despotic governments and tyrannical cultural mores, the freedom which the US represents to them is very special and very real. What is painful to see is the Americans pissing away their freedom.
My Philosophy Inspiration. What follows is work worth doing; without it, practice and study.
What Gives Me Hope So many things these days. Al Gore. The fact that the world is uniting behind the US publics rejection of Bush.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Really? Kind of an abstract question. Of which location? Setting an example is a good way to answer that.
What/who changed my life and why
What Bugs Me obviousness with an absence of correct, unwholesome speech, harsh words, "bitchiness"  
Passions writing, making a difference, Energy Healing And Love, environment  
Inspirations Horatio, good people, some of my teachers  
What Scares Me Homeland Security  
Role Models Owen Lattimore  
Quotation "It is wrong to expect a reward for your struggles. The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win. Even though you can't expect to defeat the absurdity of the world, you must make that attempt. That's morality, that's religion. That's art. That's life." - Phil Ochs
